When a criminal threatens Paige's happy family, she looks to her past to deal with the mortal menace. Conjuring up a detective from one of her favorite noir novels, Paige creates a street smart gumshoe to help set up a sting and take down the hood. But when the fictional private Dick decides he likes life outside the pages, the set up takes a dark and dangerous turn in ... Crossed, Triple-Crossed.







Magical Notes[]


To Summon Richard Quinn[]

Paige casting a spell in the comic
Buckthorn, nutmeg, and a few bleeding hearts.
Bind some old school skills with internet smarts.
Let him know what I know, see what I've seen.
Everything else, give him power to glean.
To fight modern crime lords and how they think,
Send a street-wise detective that bleeds ink.

Turn page to flesh with a touch of pink.
I release him now with blood from ink.
